The study of economics is a worthwhile pursuit, though the average economist tends to assume too much. They work with models for a living, see, and have to estimate and predict conditions and all sorts of stuff.
Have you heard the one about an economist stuck on a desert island with nothing but tinned food to survive on? He starved to death whilst assuming a can opener.
And so it goes that The Economist magazine has an article entitle Ethanol Schmethanol, which in true form manages to criticise ethanol in favour of several other fuel technologies that don’t exist as yet. Maybe they will in the future. Maybe. But i won’t be holding my breath in anticipation of filling up with Octanol any time soon.
Once again, ethanol isn’t the answer. It’s part of the answer and it’s a part that’s here now.
Residents of Stoney Creek, Ontario, shouldn’t hold their breath waiting for the new Saab that looks like this, either.
Rumours of a new UrSaab-X are greatly exaggerated……
From now on, this blog will be running on a user pays basis and I’ll go on strike unless you agree. You’ll also pay me when there’s no stories to be written, because this site that you enjoy and come back and visit was built on the back of my hard work and so therefore I deserve payment even if I’m doing nothing.
What’s more, for the privelege of having these conditions under which I’ll blog in the future imposed upon you, you now have to pay me a $3000 signing bonus – each of you.
Yes folks, I’m joining the UAW.
GM may be ridding itself of its healthcare cost legacy. But they are still stuck with their brand and dealer legacies, which spread limited resources too thin. Buick is a dead brand. Saab is hopeless.
BusinessWeek Sucks Ass.
See, anyone can have an opinion.
It’s Grand Final day here in the football loving states of Australia. A holy day on any sport lover’s calendar. I have a mate who works in the radio room for Tasmania Police. He’s the guy you get when you call 000 in case of an emergency (you Americans can think ‘911’).
The worst days of the year to work in the radio room are New Year’s Eve, and Grand Final day.
The two teams that are playing in the Grand Final are Geelong and Port Power (from Port Adelaide in South Australia). Everyone in the country, with the exception of Port Power supporters, will be cheering for Geelong. There’s so much history in this team that I wouldn’t dare to start boring you with it.
Just believe me, if Geelong win today it’ll be a great day for footy. And they will.
